Why won't my vcr insert tapes?

Assuming there is power going to the machine, and the display is illuminated (showing clock for example), and the deck is empty, it sounds like a mechanical fault - could be worn belts or gears, but could also be a faulty/dirty mode switch (this can cause a lot of issues including failure to eject/load) - so tackle the simplest problem first - look at the belts and/or gears, especially those on the carriage/cassette cradle assembly; see if any are worn or broken.
If any belts are stretched or any gears look cracked (manufacturers used plastic gears which are often weak), see if you can order replacements. If those check out OK, next step is to examine the condition of the mode switch. To get access to this: unplug the VCR from the power point, and carefully open it up and locate the mode switch (usually UNDER the deck) and spray a little bit of CRC-2 electronic switch cleaner into the switch cavity (if the switch is a rotary type, gently rotate it in both directions to work the CRC cleaner into it - don't use too much - the cleaner evaporates but it will clean the contacts inside the switch and leave a fine lubricant to minimize wear). You do not need to open the switch or remove it. Then carefully re-fit the deck, connect everything (heads etc.) You can purchase CRC electronic cleaner from most stores (this is usually a small aerosol can with a hose attachment - ideal for switches and contacts). Then plug VCR in and test (use an old tape which has nothing important on it). If it still won't accept tapes, it's likely to be a mechanical alignment issue which requires a technician to correct as there may be broken or worn gears. (generally you cannot replace these efficiently or reliably by yourself without some experience, a gear/belt kit and a service manual to help you.)

*** I DO recommend you look at the belts and gears to check their condition FIRST before disassembling the machine or going any further. ***

Advice: being a modern design VCR, it's likely to have lots of flimsy plastic gears and other parts which break easily and may not be replaceable.

Videotape dubbing deck dead


1. Check to see if a tape is jammed inside (see 284 Extract a Jammed Videotape).
2. Try changing the video input and/or output source. Many VCRs have two ways to receive and send a video signal (coaxial and video direct). If that works, try changing the cable for the other method to see whether you need a new cable.
3. Clean tape heads (see How to Clean VCR Heads).
4. Open VCR and inspect any belts that are accessible (see 284 Extract a Jammed Videotape). A drive belt may be broken or loose.

If tapes are getting stuck / enmeshed inside the machine, itis 90% probability) a mechanical problem. Change the Belts, clean all rollers, idlers, and braking pads.
I would suggest that you also replace the Capstan Pinch Roller.

Video Go Double deck VCR (Montage), Model #6060/6600/6050

Unplug the VCR, take the cover off, find the motor (probably on the right side of the mechanism) and turn its shaft with your fingers until you have run the tape back out. Now plug it back in and try it again with a scarificial tape. If it continues to fail, replace all the rubber belts in the mechanism.
Hope ya fix it!

Sony GV-D1000 unable to be recognized.

launch video editing should be able to see your deck. none of my three macs "recognize" the deck, but finalcut pro sees and can control the deck once it is connected and turned on

check the drive belt - it's probably stretched and won't operate the mechanism to eject the tape.
